Event Details

The theme of this month’s writing competition is Hunger. Food has a special place in everyone’s heart. It’s tied to so many memories. We cook meals passed down from generation to generation to connect with our families. We eat our favorite pint of ice cream to get over a breakup. We poor a beer to make a new friend. What we eat literally and figuratively sustains us. And because of that, our hunger defines us.

For the month of November, please submit stories that revolve around the idea of hunger. Maybe that means describing a delicious meal. Maybe that means thinking about what drives you to get what you want. Think about the people that you have fed and those who have fed you. Please follow the below link to find submission guidelines. Winner will be published and receive $5.

We are keen to encourage quality submissions, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
